Research interests

Andrew Johnson is a practising artist and a graduate student in the Department of Media Arts. He is researching the writer and artist Percy Wyndham Lewis, (1882-1957), currently the years 1909-1914, the most formative period of Lewis's career. Lewis's artistic progression to Vorticism cannot be seen in isolation but as an intricate interaction of politics, philosophy, social history, and the writers and artists who were part of the Modernist movement.

Johnson's research focuses on Lewis's  surviving drawings and paintings from this period: materiality is seen as an important factor in understanding Lewis's creative interpretation of the world around him.
